Celeste and Jesse Forever (2012)

Every now and then, I get in the mood to see a fun and quirky romantic comedy. So, this time around I accidentally stumbled upon this one — I’m glad I did. At its heart, this movie is about regrets and letting go of the past and moving on to the future. Let’s face it — we’ve all done things that we’ve regretted. And, in doing so — we wish we could change the past thus altering the future. But, we can’t. And, learning how to deal with the choices (and perhaps the mistakes) we have Read more [...]

Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

When I first saw the trailer to this film, it definitely looked entertaining. I’ve always enjoyed watching Steve Carell, whether it be on film or television. Though, I was a bit unsure if this was a movie I should wait to go on DVD. Yet after much debate (as well as reading a lot of positive reviews), I decided to check it out and hit the theatre. I’m glad I did! Before I get into the review, I will say my hesitation to see this movie was due to the trailer – it looked like it may be a film Read more [...]

Midnight in Paris (2011)

Now, I have to admit – this film was not really on my radar even when I saw the trailer. Honestly, I have not really enjoyed much of Woody Allen’s work in the past. So, I really didn’t think anything of it when it first came out. Though, it wasn’t until I started reading reviews about the movie that got me interested. And, to my surprise – many of the reviews were positive. So, I decided to check it out – I’m glad I did. This film is a bit of a comedy and drama type of movie rolled into Read more [...]

Blue Valentine (2010)

When I first saw the trailer to this movie, I instantly thought of this one. Maybe it had something to do with the music, it looked familiar. Though, I was wrong – it was not the type of movie I had expected. Let me just say, this is more of a dark movie than anything else. The film starts off with the present day going back forth between present and past to tell the story. And, that is the story of the two main characters, Dean (played by Ryan Gosling) and Cindy (played by Michelle Williams). From Read more [...]

The Good Guy (2009)

Being in the mood for a drama and romantic type of film, this one caught my eye. And, I guess it was primarily because I had not seen Alexis Bledel on camera for awhile. As a fan of this show, I’ve found the characters she plays interesting and enjoyable to watch. Before I go into my review, I have to admit – I went into this cold turkey (just like this film). I never saw the trailer – I just made the decision based on the cover description and the fact that Alexis Bledel was in it. To my Read more [...]
